17th Annual Mary Meachum Freedom Crossing Celebration
Every year, we work with a variety of partners to plan and host the Mary Meachum Freedom Crossing Celebration on the Mississippi Greenway. The theme of the event changes each year and shines a spotlight on important-yet rarely told or not widely known- black history in St. Louis. The theme for 2019 is “Africans to Americans: 1619-2019 400 Years of History.”
